Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and happy to help you with your question.
Just Answer is an independent UK tax advice site and not connected to any Government Department. Your question seems to indicate that you are in receipt of some pension. Depending upon the rules of the pension fund it may preclude payment thereof on marriage, but without more detail I am unable to assist further.
You should abvise your change of address to your HMRC tax office to ensure correct notification of tax code numbers for example and also your pension provider.
The two persons in a marriage have independent status for tax purposes and have had for many years. In general terms marriage does not affect individuals' tax although, having said that, from this year one partner can give up an unused 1K of their personal allowance to the other party.
I do hope that I have been able to shed some light on your situation.
